Daily brief (11/24): Top picks from the Springfield media

Another round of thunderstorms will move through the area today. The temperature will peak at 66 before dropping close below freezing tonight.

Tomorrow morning will be cold but clear for the Turkey Trot 5K, the biggest run of the year in the Ozarks.

Today’s picks:

  • KY3: Branson airport will get partial payment from city. The city of Branson has included $260,000 in its 2011 budget, less than what the airport contends it is entitled to under the contract with the city.
  • News-Leader: Homeless still left out in the cold. The city of Springfield has been working to improve the situation for people who are homeless, but many still face the prospect of being outside when the temperatures drop.
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Traffic monitors to adjust lights for Black Friday. Weekend shoppers may notice a difference in the way traffic lights are timed as the holiday shopping season begins.
  • KY3: Children’s Miracle Network drive under way. Toys collected this season will go to children in pediatric units and other medical facilities around the Ozarks.
